      As great as fasting is for health, several people's first
      reaction when it is suggested to them is the weakness they
      may experience from low blood sugar considering the absence
      food. Though it is an important factor, there are some tips
      one can implement to prevent or alleviate such an experience
      from fasting.


      Now, I was discussing with a friend at work about the issue
      of juice and water fasting.


      Incidentally, she is a Christian so she knows what fasting
      is all about at least from a Christian or spiritual fasting
      point of view.


      She told me that as much as she may like the concept of
      fasting for cleansing the body, she always worried about her
      blood sugar levels while fasting and felt that about the
      only way she could be successful at it was if she took some
      days off to be away from even the mildest of physical
      exertions.


      She is quite correct.


      However, from my experiences with Christian and juice
      fasting, if one uses the following fasting diet or juice
      recipe it will be safe to say that one's blood sugar level
      while fasting would not be too low, consequently weakness
      may not be experienced in excess.


      First, here are the necessary ingredients.

      -Grade B Maple Syrup (Organic preferably)

      -Organic Valencia Oranges

      -Chilled Water (distilled, reverse osmosis or filtered)


      The basic recipe is this


      For each medium size to large orange and 2.5 (or slightly
      less) oz of maple syrup, add enough cold water to make a
      pint's worth of juice.


      The Genuine Maple Syrup has a balanced mixture of sugars
      (unlike honey, which is a big no! no!) and when thoroughly
      masticated (the fasting juice that is...) it is released
      with even more ease into the blood stream, consequently it
      makes the blood sugar levels while fasting more leveled
      out.


      Admittedly, one may feel a little tired now and then, that
      is more of a detoxification symptom rather than fatigue as a
      result of a low blood sugar levels from fasting.


      This is why to slow the immense detoxing down, it is best to
      consume adequate (if not exclusive) amounts of fruits and
      vegetables to build an alkaline reserve in the body.


      These will also serve as intestinal brooms and moreover,
      initialize the detoxifying so by the time you engage in a
      juice or even water fasting session, you will be much
      cleansed for the process.


      So don't let the fear of low blood-sugar levels scare you
      from a fast when needed, with the tips above, you will
      definitely be just fine in using a fast for improving your
      health.
